Great Performances

Before becoming a successful CBS late-night television host, James Corden enjoyed a stage triumph in both London and New York in "One Man, Two Guvnors," an adaptation of a 1743 farce. The frantic comedy gives Corden a showpiece role as a musician turned bodyguard who flirts with disaster when he tries to earn extra cash by working for two rival mobsters. His tour-de-force performance earned Corden the coveted Tony Award on Broadway. Jemima Rooper, Oliver Chris, Daniel Rigby and Martyn Ellis also star.
